Surrender – A Christ-ian Model  

“Happy are they who give themselves to God! They are delivered from their passions, from the judgements of other, from their malice, form the tyranny of their sayings, from their cold and wretched mocking, from the misfortunes which the world distributes to wealth, from the unfaithfulness and inconstancy of friends, from the wiles of snares of the enemy, from our own weakness, from the misfortunes and brevity of life, from the horrors of a profane death, from cruel remorse attached to wicked pleasures, and

The New Totalitarian ‘Creep’ – And No, We Are Not Referring to Him…  

The New Totalitarian ‘Creep’ – And No, We Are Not Referring Him… 

(The following is direct excerpts from the Book “Live Not By Lies”

“What is happening here? A progressive – and profoundly anti-Christian militancy – is steadily overtaking society; one described by Pope Benedict XVI as a “worldwide dictatorship of seemingly humanistic ideologies” that pushes dissenters to society’s margins. Benedict called this a manifestation of “the spiritual power of the Antichrist. This spiritual power takes material…

What Makes a Nation Stand Up and Out?  

Isn’t the obvious answer to that question, how it Loves and cares for its people? ‘Love’ is the single greatest virtue because it is the panacea to all global ills, ask anyone? Well, at least my sensate ubiquitous version of that state is anyway. 

So, once we all agree on this point, now it is just a small step of getting everyone to take that prescribed medicine; easy, yeh? 

Even Jesus Christ gave us a New Commandment, one that transcended even the Golden Rule… “To love one another as He loved us.” (John…

Alexandr Solzhenitsyn: A World Split Apart  

An utterly prophetic declaration on the Wests cultural dalliance with toxic ideologies and where they will lead....Delivered 8 June 1978, Harvard University (Excerpt) 

A decline in courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days. The Western world has lost its civil courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, each government, each political party, and, of course, in the United Nations. Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable…

Sent to try us! 

Sent to try us!

A familiar example is Abraham’s trial when he was ordered to sacrifice Isaac. At this moment I am concerned with the obvious question, ‘If God is omniscient he must have known what Abraham would do, without any experiment, why, then, this needless torture?’ But as St Augustine points out, whatever God knows, Abraham at any rate did not know that his obedience could endure such a command until the event taught him; and the obedience which he did not know that he would choose, he cannot be

Cancel Culture - Christ Style 

The Christian way is different: harder, and easier. Christ says, “Give me All. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want You. I have not come to torment your natural self but to kill it. No half-measures are any good. I don’t want to cut off a branch here, and a branch there. I want to have the whole tree down. I don’t want to drill the tooth, or crown it, or stop it, but to have it out. Hand over the whole natural self, all the desires which you think

When They Came For.... 

When they came for the Alt-right mouth breather I did nothing but smile gleefully as such sub-humans do not deserve to even breath the same air as the rest of us. 

When they came for the Fundamentalist naïve realist Christ followers, I did nothing, as they really are socially unpalatable and culturally inept to a cringe-worthy degree. 

When they came for the Conservatives, I did nothing, because they are irrelevant and in the way of progress. 

When they came for the Pentecostals, I did nothing, as their…

The Rationale for Revenge? 

In his small, but potent book, The Problem of Pain, Clive Lewis looks at the visceral notion of revenge, the following is one excerpt, 

“Revenge loses sight of the end in the means, but it's end is not wholly bad - it wants the evil of the bad man to be to him what it is to everyone else. This is proved by the fact that the avenger wants the guilty party not merely to suffer, but to suffer at his hands, and to know it, and to know why. Hence the impulse to taunt the guilty man with his crime at the moment

Who Says We Are Undeserving? 

Grace – undeserved favour – through the lens of ‘stigma cancelling culture’.                                                             

“Stigma and Shame are bad – toxic man! We must erase them from our culture, right?  Like, you know, no one should be made to feel bad about themselves or their choices, it’s bad for your mental health!” 

Author? Pretty much any millennial raised by the pop-culture. 

What is becoming more disturbing is that this previous statement is no longer simply an innocuous…
